Oreo Truffles

For part of my Christmas baking this year I decided to do some oreo truffles, I had a couple boxes of oreos and this recipe looked to good to pass up!

These were really quick and simple to make.

1 1/2 boxes of double stuff oreos
8 oz. cream cheese
3/4 cup icing sugar
1 1/2 cups white chocolate dipping wafers
1 tbsp shortening (optional)

Using a food processor pulse the oreo cookies until they are crumbs. Set aside about 2 tbsp of crumbs for garnish.

In your mixer, mix together the cream cheese and icing sugar until smooth.

Combine the oreo crumbs and cream cheese mixture using your hands until the crumbs are thoroughly mixed with the cream cheese.

Line a cookie sheet with wax paper and roll the mixture into 1 inch balls, place on the cookie sheet and refridgerate for about 20 minutes.

While the dough is firming up, melt the white chocolate dipping wafers in a glass bowl overtop of a pot of gently boiling water (over medium heat). I just sit my glass bowl right into the pot making sure it's not touching the water. Add in the tbsp of shortening to keep the mixture smooth.

Using a fork dip each ball into the mixture and cover completely with white chocolate, put back onto the cookie sheet and sprinkle with oreo crumbs that you previously set aside.

Pop them back into the fridge for about 10 minutes to let the white chocolate set.
